Ignitors for Tangentially-Fired Boilers
FPS has developed replacement gas and oil Horn
Ignitors for the Combustion Engineering (C-E) boiler market. Our
vast experience and expertise on C-E boilers, combined with an
in-depth knowledge in the field of ignition equipment, has enabled
FPS to implement significant design improvements and produce efficient,
reliable ignitors for these tangentially-fired boilers.
FPS horn ignitors are assembled onto an adaptor
plate so that internal components insert through the windbox chamber
and rest in a strategic location within the ignitor horn. Differential
pressure between the ignitor combustion air source and the furnace
propels the turbulent fan-shaped ignitor flame out of the horn
to penetrate the burner fuel stream and ensure positive light-off
of the main fuel. A strong blow torch type flame ensures excellent
main fuel ignition.
FPS horn ignitors are designed to fit standard
C-E windbox arrangements, however custom designs are available
for applications where the original burner structure has been
modified. The ignitor is designed to use existing C-E windbox
air with an option available for an external combustion air supply.
The ignitors can be mounted in existing horns. If required, new
cast stainless steel horns, complete with mounting hardware, are
available from Fossil to replace deteriorated or damaged horns.
FPS horn ignitors are supplied complete with a
custom designed mounting/adapter plate and gasket, to mount on
the existing bolt arrangement. All FPS ignitors use the SunSpot
Horn Ignitors The FPS Oil Ignitors burn No.2
light oil and provide up to 6MBtu/hr.
(Additional 14 mBtu/hr available with optional booster)
Horn Ignitors The FPS Gas Ignitors burn natural
gas or propane, and provide up to 20MBtu/hr.
